I'm Going to Start Monday

Have you ever said that?

I'm going to start my diet on Monday!

I'm going to start exercising, on Monday!

I'm going to start my devotional time...on Monday!

I'm going to...........on Monday!

But what looks different in our week? What are we doing differently throughout our week compared to the previous weeks that will help us not say the old saying...I'm going to start on Monday?

I always have great plans. Plans to eat well, to cook meals every night of the week, to walk the track and so on. But those plans go awry pretty early in the week.

Why is it that once we "mess up" we figure the week is wasted and we'll just wait till Monday to start again?

I am battling this craziness. Yes, I have good excuses as my summer has been filled with hospitalizations with Christian and traveling to school, but enough is enough! This is going to be a great week....Christian's surgery and all!

Let's not get to the point where we await Monday with a bit of dread. Let's rejoice that we have yet another day and make it our best :)

Today I Am Thankful For:

1. beautiful notecards
2. little boys
3. boiling chicken for our puppy (Yes, I actually did this....)
4. short fingernails
5. getting caught up
